Are You Up for These Bold and Easy Summer Hairstyles?

Is your hair feeling a little flat, dull, or lifeless? Does it have a case of the winter blues? Then liven it up with a bold and easy summer hairstyle. And there’s no better time to switch up your style than during the summer, the season to see and be seen. So, what are you waiting for? Try out one (or more) of these trendy looks!

Blunt Bob

Who needs long hair in the heat? Go short and chic with this hip hairstyle. Bobs are big right now, particularly the blunt cut, which is a straight, even cut all the way around. It’s a very versatile cut—it looks great pin straight, or in messy waves. If a bob is too short for your taste, go for a shoulder-length lob, which is basically a long bob, sported by celebs like Selena Gomez and Bella Hadid.

Pixie Cut

Why cut off some of your hair when you can cut all of it off? Pull a Katy Perry and ditch your long locks for a pixie cut. The pixie is perfect for summer because it’s an eye-catching look that’s also easy to maintain. And less time spent in front of the mirror means more time at the beach!

70s Chic

Step back in time with a retro bohemian look. Ask for shaggy, choppy layers for a super 70s look, or keep it classic with flowy, brushed-out curls. For an extra dash of retro, go for curtained bangs or fringe bangs  à la Ciara or Kendall Jenner.


You don’t need a 70s style to rock bangs. With a few snips, you can change your whole look. Curly bangs are on trend, and they’re a bold deviation from the classic straight bang. Baby bangs, which lay just above the eyebrows and have been worn by Emma Watson and Emma Roberts, are also a cute summer style.

Chunky Accessories

Not ready for a new haircut? Then create a bold new look with oversized hair accessories that make a statement:

Big Barrettes

Bigger is better when it comes to this trend. Just one barrette will do, but don’t be afraid to rock several at a time. You can also achieve this style with bobby pins, particularly those covered in rhinestones, pearls, beads, or velvet. You can use a few to tuck your hair behind your ear, or you can use a whole pack!

Padded headbands

Forget those thin, plastic bands; thick, chunky, padded headbands are where it’s at. They can dress up an outfit, or complement a casual look. They can even disguise a bad hair day.

Large bows and scarves

Oversized bows can be found on scrunches, clips, and elastic ponytail holders. If you don’t have a bow, tie your hair back with a light, flowy scarf.

With your new, bold look you won’t just follow the trends—you’ll set them.
